As we move through our practice, and indeed our lives, we are confronted with challenges, internal dialogue and drama. This is perfectly natural. However, it is not always necessary to react to these thoughts, feelings and emotions. We all possess the ability to witness our thoughts, feelings and emotions without getting too involved. With practice, and using the medium of our bodies and our breath, we can face the challenges that arise in our practice without adding to the mental chatter and drama. This is what moving from a foundation of contentment means. This is a relatively gentle practice, the onus being upon the experience more than the outcome.
